Have you lost the ability to enjoy your favorite foods? Have your teeth been damaged by an injury, illness or dental disease? Consider complete dentures as an excellent option for a strong, healthy smile.
Well-crafted complete dentures effectively replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue for a more natural look. Fitted properly, they function just as normal teeth do, enabling the wearer to chew through all types of food and allowing for better speech and digestion.
Complete dentures are constructed in one of two forms – conventional or immediate – and fitted over a period of several weeks. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed, and the gums have started to heal. They are ready to be placed about 8 to 12 weeks after teeth are removed. Immediate dentures are made prior to removing teeth and are put in place immediately. Because the gum tissue will continue to heal and change shape, some adjustments may be necessary with immediate dentures.
